For Herman Cain, GOP unease grows as claims mount and 1 accuser goes public
ATLANTA (AP) ' Herman Cain sought to ride out the sexual harassment scandal engulfing his embattled presidential campaign by projecting a business-as-usual fa ade.
But there were growing signs of unease in conservative circles as a fourth accuser provided a name and a face to what had been anonymous harassment allegations. Sharon Bialek's detailed and lurid accusations ' that Cain groped her in a car after she asked for his help finding a job ' spun his already embattled campaign into an uncertain new territory.
The Cain camp flatly denied the charges, which they planned to address Tuesday at a news conference in Phoenix. Cain told late night host Jimmy Kimmel that he plans to set the record straight. After a week of declining to address the allegations, Cain said he'll talk about them.
